Excerpt: Hey female, 145 pounds, 45 years old. Iíve used T3 cytomel for many years and it screwed up my thyroid so the doctor has me on synthroid at 100mcg, he decided to switch me back to cytomel T3 at 10mcg because my bloodwork showed elevated numbers. A week later I feel very bloated, what should I do?

    Go to the Dr. let him do the proper testing.

    what blood work? Was it free, T4, T3, or TSH?
    I am surprised they changed you to T3. My Dr will only prescribe T4.
    I have no thyroid.

    I am not sure that taking T3 screwed up your thyroid.

    I would listen to doctor and tell him about your symptoms dont self medicate
    but thyroid dosing can cause bloat

    get some fiber and probiotics to start

    unfortunately bloating is a possible side effect with T 3

    I would have never suggested you go near that stuff in the 1st place

    I would push the doctor to make sure nothing else is going on. It could just be a side effect you will deal with.
